Remember, if Christmas isn’t found in your heart, you won’t find it under the tree. Charlotte Carpenter
I bought my brother some gift-wrap for Christmas. I took it to the Gift Wrap department and told them to wrap it, but in a different print so he would know when to stop unwrapping. Steven Wright
Rings and jewels are not gifts, but apologies for gifts, for the only [true] gift is a portion of thyself. Ralph Waldo Emerson
And every gift, though it be small, is in reality great if given with affection. Pindar
A good conscience is a continual Christmas. Benjamin Franklin
Adults who [hang] gifts of a ready-made education on the Christmas tree of a child waiting outside the door to life do not realize how unreceptive they are making the children to everything that constitutes the true surprise of life. Karl Kraus
Occurring on April 29, the new Moon in Taurus is a annular solar eclipse. It is not a total eclipse, but it does have a similar feeling about it. From timeanddate.com: An annular solar eclipse can be observed when the Moon moves centrally in front of the Sun, but it is so far away from Earth that it appears smaller in the sky and cannot cover the Sun completely. The Sun's outer edges are then still visible and form a “ring of fire” around the Moon. Check out that timeanddate.com link as there is some interesting information there, including where the eclipse is visible and at what time around the world.
